Spectra 340 Catalina Feed Pressure

Since install about a year ago, the feed pressure has constantly been in the 88psi range with product quality around 250.

I made water while we sailed across the Bahamas Bank and noticed that the feed pressure was between 99 and 102 and water quality was 160.

The filter is still at 100%.

What could be causing the higher feed pressure. It literally changed in one day.

Re: Spectra 340 Catalina Feed Pressure

What's he production? Salinity and temperature make a difference. The 340's feed pump is easily capable of those pressures normally and the Clark pump is self adjustable to these changes. Unless you see a major drop in production this is probably normal.
